The pervasive effects of maltreatment on child development can be repaired when parents use effective, empirically validated, and evidence-based methods. This book describes a comprehensive approach to parenting and discusses a variety of issues including attachment, trauma, neuro-psychological impairments, sensory-integration, and treatment approaches as well as the use of media, play, and narratives to create connections. The book will be useful to child welfare and residential treatment professionals as well as professors teaching family-therapy, child-welfare, and child-treatment courses.
